Alex's Story...
Alex is an affectionate, sweeeeeet, and well-behaved young male cat seeking a home.

Alex was found on Route 57. He was trapped on a hillside, close to the highway, and could not get off the hillside because it was fenced off at the top. Possibly he was dumped out of a car. Kind Christine W. stopped her car and scooped him up. He purred and happily rode on the dashboard of her car, where it was warm, the entire way home to Hyde Park!

Alex is a big, black, neutered male with a teeny bit of white under his chin on his neck. He is about two years old and is very sweet and affectionate. He is not a picky eater -- so far he likes Iams dry and Fancy Feast canned, any flavor. He has been hanging out in a bathroom for two weeks, getting used to stuff, while we try to place him in a foster home. He likes to sit on his towel and on his kitty bed, as well as in the bathroom sink. He loves company.

He was obviously someone's pet at one time ... he has his claws but is a gentleman with them. He uses a scratching post and has excellent litterbox habits. He loves to play with people as well as with his catnip strawberry and his fuzzy toys.

Please consider adding Alex to your household. He's a gem, a sweetie and a keeper!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Alex, a Chicago Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
